North Staffordshire is delighted to have been chosen as only one of four Trusts selected for the mobilisation phase of the Lorenzo Digital Exemplar programme.
The Trust see the Lorenzo Digital Exemplar programme as a great opportunity to improve our services for children in the community. These exciting plans build on our reputation as a digital exemplar and will be an excellent opportunity to spread our learning to other Trusts across the country.
Combined Healthcare’s plans centre on delivering a digital transformation programme with the Children and Young People (CYP) Directorate. We aim to deliver a future where young people and their families are empowered to use technology to revolutionise their care. We want to remodel the referral and assessment functions within our CYP service by increasing the proportion of children with the ability to self-care and self-refer into services. This self-referral approach improves recovery, and enables a person to seek prompt treatment at an early stage, and it also reduces the likelihood of lower degree problems becoming more severe.
We’ll be working closely with local schools, helping us develop a vision of how technology can really change the lives of children, young people and their families.”
